Maddie Mastro capped off her dominant World Cup season with a win in the superpipe at the 2024 Dew Tour. Despite earning multiple podium finishes throughout her career, the win is particularly sweet as it marks her first time on top of the podium in five years, with her last victory coming at the 2019 Burton U.S. Open.

The win wasn’t going to be easy for Mastro, who was up against a stacked field of riders including 2023-24 FIS World Cup crystal globe winner Mitsuki Ono. Mastro finished second to Ono in the World Cup overall standings this season and the two were favored to battle it out for the top spot in Saturday’s competition.

Sitting in third heading into her third run, Mastro seemed relaxed yet determined, as she dropped in the iconic Dew Tour superpipe for the final time. The crowd anxiously watched from the bottom, knowing her position on the podium would ultimately come down to if she could land her signature last hit, the double crippler.

“It’s one of my favorite tricks to do, so nerves are very minimal,” said Mastro. “In that moment I’m just trying to tell myself to breathe and go over what to do in my head. The win feels pretty amazing, I’ve had a lot of seconds and thirds in my career so this one feels really, really good.”

Mastro was joined by teammates Sonora Alba and Kinsley White, who finished the day in fourth place and sixth place, respectively.

Attention shifted to the streetstyle course where Hydro Flask U.S. Snowboard Team’s Luke Winkelmann threw down under the lights in front of a rowdy crowd of fans. After qualifying out of heat two in the top spot, Winkelmann put down two solid runs to best Salt Lake City streetstyle icon Joey Fava in the round of duals, guaranteeing him a spot on the podium.

Canadian’s Liam Brearly and Darcy Sharpe joined Winkelmann in the final round where the best of two runs would decide the podium order. Winkelmann’s run two score of 88.66 was good enough to best Sharpe but not enough to take the top spot away from Brearly, whose breakout season has been nothing short of impressive.

The Hydro Flask U.S. Snowboard Team continues their Dew Tour campaign Sunday, March 10 with the men’s snowboard superpipe competition.
